China in Africa: Development Partner or Neo-Colonial Trojan Horse?

The first Forum on China and Africa Cooperation Summit (FOCAC) were held in Beijing from November 3 to 5, 2006. This was a grand affair; however, much has happened since this major event. This episode discusses the Chinese presence and ambitions in Africa today. Dr. Joshua Eisenman is an Associate Professor of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs. His research focuses on the political economy of China’s development and its foreign relations with the United States and the developing world – particularly Africa. He is the author of several books, two of which are forthcoming on China in Africa.
